brittle, disentegrating. poo :(

yeah this really blows because my hopper lid has broken off 2 times. i don't play like a die hard yet. still have school like woah, so i don't have the time to play enough to wear out my stuf as fast as i have. so my hopper is disentagrating. pretty much the entire thing. lid, shells. but the electronics are still sick.

are there any hoppers that are solid and have hard plastic?
i shoot a spyder so i don't need to have the insane speed of a halo or what not

what i was thinknig was i would dig the new velocity, if i could tone it down to the speed i need. i dig the hopper, and what ive read so far. do yall think it is solid? and definetly worth the money?

^^ not really

if you are going through hoppers at a good clip look into the apache as the shells rarely break, and if they do they are covered under the warrenty

is it an electronic spyder? If i were you, i'd just get a halo. Eventually your going to end up getting one anyways so just cut out the middle man.

well the problem with that is most spyders can't handle Halos. The Halo would push the paint bast the detent.

The VLocity will work but anything above setting 1 is possably going to give you chops till setting 4 then it will most likely chop paint.

yeah i have an e fram on my xtra. im not dump and i don't feel like explaining my set up. but its solid i know. fast enough, light enough. im shooting a revi w/ x board. and its just brittle and like soft. and like that guy said cut out the middl man. i wanted to go ahead and get a halo or a vlocity. i don't want to set it on anything crazy or hardcore with the pressure settings.
just enough to drop the paint efficiently and get the job done. you know?

any ideas?

o and i thought vlocity because of all the settings, and i know the halo is solid to but no as many settings, or at least as weak as id need.

if you wanted a forcefeed hopper for your Spyder get a VLocity. An egg will also work well for you. You could have it sit like I had my old one.

The way I had it on there it fed more then fast enough. Then also with it sitting on that sight rail it took off the pressure on the neck and prevented it from most of the egg related brackage.
